Myo Reps, Density Block are both frequently referred to on here and are not widely discussed outside (never been there). It would be helpful to define these in this thread (especially Density Block).

You just try to get as many technically perfect reps as you can in a set amount of time. It's in a grey area between 'training' and fucking around. I throw non-essential exercises that respond to volume in a density block. Basically it's a time-efficient way to bonus work in. You'd never train a priority lift this way.

What is the most common name for barbell rows done with the bar hanging, and not touching the floor during the reps.
Back starting closer to perpindicular than the pretty upright examples of bent over row i've seen.

Is that still just called bent over row?

I've been calling them bodybuilder BB rows

I use "Barbell Row", with "Pendlay Row" starting from the floor. Much to @Testiclaw's irritation.

Barbell row supported (touches ground)

Barbell row unsupported (does not touch ground)

Yates Row (unsupported Barbell row, 45°'ish torso)

Pendlay row is very, very specific.

hmmmm

"Supported Row" to me, means a row where the lifted is supported by a bench or apparatus.
T-bar supported rows and the like. That's how is googles out too...

Barbell Rows where the bar doesn't touch the ground, I'd just call a body builder Row, or a Strict BarBell Row or something.

--------------------

A seal row is a type of supported row.
Usually a barbell row performed on a flat bench propped up on blocks or plates.
With DB's, or on a inclined bench, the name usually makes becomes more obvs as the lifter's torso will prop up like a seal wollowering? around on the beach/ice. ( It has nothing to do with the military S.E.A.L.'s )

Seal rows (bench, propped up) were more popular in old Olympic WL gym from what I remember ... beck in the day.
You needed a real rudimental skeleton of bench ... big open space underneath.
And you had to stack it up pretty high, thicker flat sided bumpers and/or pulling blocks are good for this....not something you'd see in a globo gym in the 80's and 90's. We just called them bench rows or something.

(I never hear the seal row thing until I was in quasi-BB-phase-of adolescence later on)

Same as inclines for bench, I denote a degree of back angle.

My standard BoR is about 45deg, so if I do parallel to the floor BoRs then I just denote it's a "90 degree BoR" for my log.

I guess it depends on the forum. In 20 or so years of reading bodybuilding attendant stuff, I never saw these described as anything other than "barbell rows" or "bent over rows," and (seriously) never was even aware of the concept of touching the floor, forget about resetting on it. A Pendlay row (or whatever incorrect version(s) folks do) was an entirely new concept to me like 5-6 years ago when I started reading powerlifting attendant stuff.

My understanding is that Yates rows are done supinated as well as with the 45 degree angle.

"Unsupported" is the word i didn't know i was looking for.

Thought about "suspended", but that could mean hanging or inverted.

I've been calling them "hover rows" in my log as shorthand. I'm sure nobody else uses that term.

good one^

I went thru this thread quickly and didn't see these:

OTM - On The Minute. Starting a rep, or a set, right on 60 sec intervals.

also

EMOM - Every Minute On the Minute. (same thing^)
